Anthony Rivers is a Champlain alum who earned his B.S. in Psychology in 2018. After graduation, he applied his understanding of learning and the brain to teach people about their dogs’ behavior and ways to address it, earning certification in 2020. Anthony returned to the Champlain community in 2022 – first to the Compass Student Services team, before transitioning to his current role in the ODI in August 2022. Anthony was born and raised in the Cayman Islands, but often traveled to visit family in Vermont during the summertime. While his mom’s love for scuba diving is what initially drew her to Cayman Brac, Anthony’s love for hiking and nature has helped make Vermont his second home. Anthony is passionate about mentorship, Caribbean history and culture, his dog Chip (and other dogs), encouraging self-discovery and facilitating identity work. When he isn’t working or taking care of Chip, you may find Anthony playing intramural basketball with the Staff/Faculty & Alumni team, writing, doing some kind of outdoor activity, or enjoying some downtime with a video game.
